Bright acidity and a notably enlivening finish.

Growing Conditions

This inaugural Chardonnay release was made from fruit sourced in the Russian River Valley, known for its sunny warm weather, which resulted in a ripe, exuberant fruit character. Initially produced as a family-only vintage, this charming little Chardonnay eventually took its place as a permanent feature in the Palmaz wine portfolio.
